Heartbeat FM was a popular love song station in Dublin broadcasting from 1986 until 1988 on 1116 kHz AM and 95.5 FM, although it dropped the AM transmitter towards the end of its run. It was an example of one of the niche stations of the era and featured a format that would be copied in later years by Radio Dublin. These recordings from the 30th August 1988 include links by John Keogh and Maurice Nevin, ads, jingles and news.
We are delighted to bring you some recordings from 2018 from Wireless Flirt (the radio show about radio in Ireland). In this interview, John Walsh caught up with David Baker who worked for or managed a long list of pirates in Dublin in the 1980s. John worked with David in KLAS from 1986-1988.
